Celebrate joy, positivity, and love with a STEAM spin at this special Kindness Weekend at the Westchester Children's Museum. Activities include kindness ripples, human circuits, helping hands, friendship bracelets, cookie fiasco, and balance.

Kindness Ripples - Learn how small acts of kindness can have a big impact, just like ripples in a puddle; science explains this wave phenomenon. 

Human Circuits - Make an impact when you join hands with family and friends; this collaborative demo will teach about completing circuits, conducting electricity, and insulation.

Helping Hands - Use the Engineering Design process to create a prototype of a helping hand with moving fingers using cardboard, string, and straws. Try making it wave hello or grab a ball.

Friendship Bracelets - Create beautiful friendship bracelets to share with friends using string and jewelry connectors.

Cookie Fiasco - Solve the cookie-sharing dilemma of 3 cookies between 4 friends with The Cookie Fiasco, a playful introduction to fractions by Mo Willems and Dan Santat. 

Balance - Explore emotional balance (and gravity) through interactive activities like walking a balance beam and using a scale.
